Very powerful, the high-end gaming laptop Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 G733QS-HG019T with 17 inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen with frequency of 300Hz which improves fluidity in games is able to run recent and demanding games without worry. with its high-end NVIDIA Ampere ray tracing GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card which also speeds up processing. This is also the case for the large amount of RAM, the Octo Core Ryzen 7 5800H Cezanne processor and the fast 1TB SSD storage which boosts its responsiveness, the trio providing great overall power. RGB optical mechanical keyboard as well as Wi-Fi ax and USB-C connectivity are also on the program for this computer to play and create, which however overlooks the Thunderbolt.

Chassis, connectors, screen of Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 G733QS-HG019T
It sports a clearly gamer design by taking up the codes of the genre with its black frame with angular lines.
It is cooled by 2 fans, heat pipes and 4 ventilation grids.
This gaming laptop PC benefits from a good connection except that it is devoid of Thunderbolt.
There are wireless Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, an HDMI video output useful for easily connecting this computer to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports, 1 USB-C but also 3 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are plugged into it.
Here the keyboard is an optical mechanical model particularly suited to games. It can obviously be backlit, here by an RGB solution per key, which is practical for distinguishing the keys in the dark.
The screen particularly targets gamers because it boasts a refresh rate of 300Hz much higher than the 60Hz standard, which enhances fluidity in games. IPS and 100% sRGB, the screen also has wide viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically, and reproduces colors more faithfully than average. It also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content such as videos due to its Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in bright environments (eg outdoors) while being more restful for the eyes in prolonged use.
Performance, battery life of Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 G733QS-HG019T
The Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 G733QS-HG019T may appeal to those on a big budget who want to invest in a versatile 17-inch laptop that\’s powerful in gaming and creation.
The overall power delivered by this gaming laptop PC is able to appeal to the most demanding users, whether gamers or creators.
Because it is based on a large amount of 32 GB RAM coupled to an Octo Core AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 5800H Cezanne processor .
These components notably guarantee processing that is faster than 8/16 GB DDR4 and a Quad / Hexa Core processor. The difference is particularly important in areas that are intensive in RAM and CPU resources and take advantage of multicore, such as video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.
Under software using GPU computing power (e.g. Adobe Premiere / Photoshop, Sony Vegas), processing is even more accelerated by the dedicated high-end on-board graphics card, one of the most powerful at the moment: the GeForce RTX 3080 NVIDIA Ampere with ray tracing.
Thanks to the GeForce RTX 3080 Ampere – here in a dedicated 16 GB GDDR6 edition – you can run the most recent games with a high level of detail that require graphics resources on this gaming laptop PC.
Depending on the tasks performed, the on-board NVIDIA Optimus technology switches automatically and in real time between the GeForce RTX 3080 and the AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 solution integrated into the processor.
Optimus uses the Radeon RX Vega 8 to the maximum despite its very modest performance because it consumes little energy and therefore promotes battery life. The GeForce RTX 3080 is in practice activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. With one or the other, we can obviously watch photos and videos
The responsiveness of this laptop designed to play and create is all the more enhanced on a daily basis as it is equipped with SSD storage.
As a reminder, an SSD is silent while being more energy efficient than a hard drive, more resistant to shocks and much faster.
Concretely, thanks to the SSD, for example, we get faster on the cards of online games than with a hard drive and we benefit from games / software launches, processing and starts / stops much faster.
Here, we are more specifically dealing with an SSD with a comfortable capacity of 1 TB that rivals hard drives. What if we need more? An M.2 slot is free to add a second SSD.
Nomads will probably not opt for this laptop because of its heaviness and thickness, but its battery life is still appreciable: expect about 7 hours of battery operation in light use. In any case, its 17-inch format is particularly comfortable for predominantly sedentary use (eg at home).
If this computer heats up and is heard when it is heavily used (eg games, processing), the noise generated remains under control for this type of PC.
